Shot at Sarue-Onshi park in Sumiyoshi, Tokyo.
In a corner of the park, some red spider lilies were blooming. I like its unique shape. Yet it is not popular in Japan because the flower is often thought as an unfortunate sign. It blooms during Higan, many Buddhists pay the ancestors a visit at that time in Japan. So it is correlated with the afterlife.
It might be a perishing nuisance for the flower. It didn't come into bloom at the convenience of the human beings.
